After graduating from university majoring in communication engineering, Wang ran a restaurant in the provincial capital of Hangzhou. He later honed his graphic design skills in Lhasa in the Tibet autonomous region before returning to his hometown of Jinhua to design advertisements. Following this, he became a professional sculptor.

Unlike most traditional artists, Wang injects many elements of fashion into his sculptures and uses a wide array of objects, such as newspapers, lipsticks, soaps, sweet potatoes and turnips, to do his carvings.

Wang told reporters that he would like to convey to the general public a sense of nostalgia and the enjoyment he derives from carving through his self-made short videos.
